A visually stunning route, run predominately on Mississauga’s beautiful Lake Ontario waterfront, and finishing at the same location as the Full Marathon and Half Marathon at Lakefront Promenade Park.
Starting at Celebration Square in full view of the award winning ‘Marilyn Monroe’ buildings, runners will cross over the Credit River to Mississauga Road. The University of Toronto’s Mississauga Campus, Mississaugua Golf and Country Club and beautiful residential neighbourhoods will lead to the picturesque Post Credit Lighthouse and on to the Lake Ontario Waterfront Trail finishing at Lakefront Promenade Park. All this while spring is in sight and trees, flowers and gardens are bright with colour.
